Welcome to Wisconsin!

...more specifically, to Trempealeau, WI. The place we now call HOME!

You'll want to find yourself on Arabian Lane, then drive to the top.

We have 3 other houses on our circle, and we are pretty spread out.

COME ON IN!! Josh and Jack will give you a quick tour.

As you walk in, on your left, is our office. It's pretty sparse for now, but as mom's Mary Kay business gets bigger, it will fill up for sure.

To your right it where our piano is hiding. There is nowhere to sit for now, so we just run and run as loud as we can on the wood floor so we sound like elephants. Mom loves it!

Hiding in the corner of the house is mom and dad's room. We have tons of fun jumping off their bed!

And WOW, do we just LOVE THIS TUB!!! All 3 of us can fit and it's like a small pool.

Back to the main part of the house, here is our family room and in the back is our kitchen and dining room. We watch for deer to come in to our yard from those windows.

It's been too cold for us to play outside, but we are SO excited to explore the forest in our back yard!!

This is our kitchen.
(please ignore the move-in mess)

This is the downstairs family room and little kitchen. We have set up forts in the bottom cabinets, and even Layla will hide in there with us!

We started to decorate for Christmas, but those pictures will be ready later.

(back to LINDSEY narrating)
This is downtown Trempealeau, which sits right on the Mississippi River. Isn't it cute? This is really all there is to it. Did you see the population # in the first picture?!

I have been really happy that this area of WI is very NOT flat! It has been a good compromise for this mountain girl. I can tell it will be beautiful in the spring/summer.

I know this wasn't full of kid pics, but those will come. Now that this storm is hitting, I will have LOTS of time to post!

Wow, your house is so beautiful! I'm so happy that you have so much space for all those kiddos to run and play! And what a charming little town! I can't wait to see more.

Ryan and Jamie Turner said...

So spacious and light! I seriously can't believe there are less than 2000 people. You are a good wifey. :)

Tanya said...

Nice house and yard! Looks like there is plenty of room for you and your family. A pleasant change from the Sugarhouse area - right?

Glad to see you guys are happy and are settling in!

Amy said...

Whoa! It's beautiful!!! (and enormous - hello bathtub!...)

I hope it's still OK that I have every intention of following you around the country....

I'm glad to see it isn't flat and squishy, it looks absolutely beautiful. Congrats

Sabrina said...

It looks like a beautiful place. Good luck with your new adventure. I hope you easily adjust to the winters up there. It looks like the rest of year will be gorgeous.

Ryan and Jamie Turner said...

Wow, I should just quit med school now and come out there. It is my dream town. Guess we will be looking for residency programs out there.

Lindsey Montague said...

Amy, seriously I TOTALLY regret not getting to know you better in person... so YES! Follow me, and I will be better at blog-stalking your site.

Ryan, I assume that was you... There are TONS and TONS of residents in our ward. In fact, the house we are in has only been rented to doctors in the past. We are the first family, with kids. Good luck to us to keep things nice and un-marked!

AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME!! (I didn't mention that there is an extra bedroom, and the boys' room was just too messy to show)

Juliann said...

Yay! Look at all that room to run and play. . . you're making a small town look good! And is there an old fashioned drugstore with a soda fountain there? That's totally what kind of town it looks like.

Lindsey Montague said...

Juliann, NOPE. But there is a Veteran's hall with All You Can Eat Spaghetti Tuesdays!!

Dan's totally gonna go.

Amanda said...

yeah pictures!! It looks so beautiful!

Emily said...

Wow! It looks beautiful out there! I love how much space you have, that must be a lot of fun for the kiddo's.

It looks like a huge cleaning commitment, you should insist upon a hired help. :) And maybe a nanny or two or four, you know like those Beverly Hills moms have.

How do you pronounce the name of your town? I'll call you to sort that last questions out...

Erin said...

Wow! That is absolutly beautiful! What a wonderful place to live. I am so excited for you.
